God's Eye Is on the Sparrow
Even though she didn't recognize it, everything in her life has prepared Carol Manson for song ministry. Starting off playing the violin in grammar school, she went on to sing in choirs at Berkeley High School. After high school, Carol put away any thoughts of singing, getting a masters degree in social work and became a State Bureaucrat, capping off a long and distinguished career as a Governor's appointee. Many years after first finding her voice as a singer and, after a health challenge, Carol found her voice again when singing a song as final project for a class at Christ Unity Church in Sacramento, California. "When I was sick, I had many conversations with God and I learned that I had a new job to do; sing and heal people with my voice." Carol finally let her voice soar when she joined the church choir "Spirit Wings" and began shining as a soloist. Not taking her singing seriously at first, Carol thought she was just "having fun on the back row". Then stepping out in faith, and surrendering to the Holy Spirit, Carol's journey led to her first CD recording - All Is Well - which includes her hit single God's Eye Is On The Sparrow. Carol's other singing credits include; being a part of the cast for the musical Hallelujah City. Carol is married to Bush Manson and is the mother of son, Mark and step-sons Monte and Al. Carol lives in Sacramento, California and is a social work consultant for two group homes for boys. She continues to sing in the choir and perform many genres of music as a soloist. ********************************************************** Carol Manson Releases First CD Single God\'s Eye Is On The Sparrow SACRAMENTO - After several years of singing as a soloist with Spirit Wings Gospel Choir at Christ Unity Church in Sacramento California, Carol Manson is breaking out as a solo recording artist with the release of her new single God's Eye is On The Sparrow.
